Portugal vs Ghana Preview
World Cup Group H, Thursday, November 24th, 16:00 (UK)
The spotlight was always going to be placed on Cristiano Ronaldo at this year’s World Cup but its intensity has only increased in the past week. Now that the maelstrom of that interview has just about died down, it is time for him to get down to business.
The task at hand is aiming to win his – and Portugal’s first-ever World Cup. Soon to be a free agent, Ronaldo must remind the world that he is clearly capable of taking Portugal all the way to the final.
Especially as this year’s group stage draw has been particularly kind to the Portuguese. Should they clear this mini-league as expected, the road to the tournament’s showpiece event will have fewer bumps in it.
Ghana are first up. It’s a squad that is boosted by an influx of new talents. Tariq Lamptey and Inaki Williams join up with the legendary Ayew brothers. It’s a balance between youthful exuberance and tournament experience that has been crafted by manager Otto Addo.
The addition of Williams in attack will certainly be one that catches the eye. The Athletic Bilbao forward is primed and ready to make his World Cup bow. He would love nothing more than to score on the game’s biggest stage.

With the week that Cristiano Ronaldo has had, it is almost written in the stars for him to score against Ghana. Not just because he is preparing for the move out of Old Trafford but also because of his international pedigree.
Even with the outrage that he has recently caused, this is still someone who has scored 117 goals and with this tally being a world record to boot. Backing him to win the Golden Boot is also worth some consideration.
If he is to win that personal accolade, he will need to get off the mark against Ghana. If that proves to be the case, a Portugal win over the Black Stars should not be far away either.
While for those who are feeling extra confident in Ronaldo’s ability in front of goal, you can also back him to score first in a standalone bet. That currently finds itself at odds of 4.00
At least a goal for the Portuguese phenom and a win for him and his teammates to go with it. That is the best possible start for this bet builder and the best possible finish will be a winning margin of two or more goals.
Get these three selections ticked off and then we have to make a case for their defence. In each of Portugal’s last four wins, they have kept a clean sheet. This means when I add both teams not scoring to the selections above, this bet builder is currently priced at odds of 4.33.
- Cristiano Ronaldo to score anytime
- Portugal to Win by 2 or More Goals
- No on BTTS
